Laundry is one task that many of us despise. Sometimes, we forget to switch the laundry over from the washer to the dryer. Other times, we may not put a load of laundry in for some time, possibly even days in a row. Other days, the same load of laundry sits in the dryer for days on end. These are only some of the struggles that many people have with doing the laundry. Being that you know of these struggles, it is important to remember that your elderly loved one has these struggles, along with the difficulties their aging body brings, too. The good news is that you can get laundry assistance for your elderly loved one through companion care at home services.
Putting Laundry in the Washer
As noted above, one of the common difficulties is putting laundry in the washer in the first place. Many people despise laundry so much that they just don’t load the washer to get it started very often. Senior citizens, often have back, neck, or arm pain. Due to this pain, they may avoid lifting laundry to put it into the washer. If this is the case, it would be a good idea to hire home care providers who can put the laundry in the washer for your elderly loved one.
Switching Over the Laundry
Has your elderly loved one forgotten to switch the laundry from the washer to the dryer on multiple occasions? If this keeps happening, it could ruin their clothes, especially if the laundry is left in the washer for days on end. If this is something that keeps happening, you may want to consider getting companion care at home services. That way, the elder care providers can come over daily or every other day to switch over the laundry for your elderly loved one.
Sorting and Putting Away Clothes
Your elderly loved one may not have a problem with doing the laundry. It might be that they have piles of clothes that just sit around because they don’t have the motivation or desire to put them away. If this is happening regularly or you see piles of laundry continuing to stack up at your elderly loved one’s home, be sure to get them some help. It may just take home care providers coming to their house to motivate your elderly loved one to put the clothes away. They may also need or want help from the elderly care providers with these tasks, as well.
Have you noticed that your elderly loved one isn’t getting their laundry done regularly? Maybe, the same load of laundry is being left in the washer or dryer for days at a time. Your elderly loved one may have to do a load of laundry multiple times because they forgot to switch it over to the dryer. No matter what type of laundry assistance your elderly loved one needs, companion care at home could be just what they need.
